Falstaff Weinguide Germany 2022: 92 points
The south-southeast facing site was already discovered by the Romans for viticulture. The Benedictines of the Wigoldesberg monastery already considered the site to be one of the best vineyard sites in the Kraichgau. In 1748, the then master cooper Johannes Emmerich built the Chapel of St. Michael at the highest point, which still bears its name today.
Our highest and steepest vineyard is located above the village of Eichelberg on a ridge crowned by a mixed beech and oak forest.
The special feature of the soil is the 160 million year old Stubensandstein with volcano, which only occurs there. The high sandstone content results in a very barren soil.
